Details Of Steve Breaston's Deal With The Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs locked up WR Steve Breaston to a five-year worth up to $25 million in the 2011 NFL free agency period. 

Now we have some details of his contract.

We're told Breaston received $5 million to sign and a $700,000 base salary in 2011. His $1.8 million base salary in 2012 is guaranteed for injury only and he has a $1.3 million roster bonus in 2012. It appears the Chiefs could get out of this after one year and less than $6 million but I can't envision a scenario with that happening.

In 2013, his base salary is $3.8 million, in 2014 it's $3 million and in 2015 it's $4.1 million. He has $200,000 workout bonuses from 2012-2015 and $1 million reporting bonuses in 2014 and 2015. He has another $500,000 in escalators available each year from 2012-2015.

All in all, it looks like a good deal for both sides. Breaston gets the long-term security he was looking for and the Chiefs get the third receiver they were looking for.
